What foes Error code f1 mean?


Error Code Definition
  • According to Appliance Parts Quick, the error code is defined as a "Primary Control Failure." This means that the small computer installed in the washer has failed to send, receive or communicate with any other part of the washer.
Reset the Code
  • To stop the flashing and beeps on the washer, hold down the "Start" and " Stop" buttons for 60 seconds. If this does not work, unplug the washer for 30 seconds and plug it back it or leave it unplugged since it is inoperable.
Parts
  • The main problem is with the machine control assembly. This whole part needs to be replaced. Depending on your model, prices range from $150 to $260, as of 2011.
Process
  • The installation of the new machine control assembly, requires manual installation and opening the washer itself. If you have never taken apart or repaired a washer, a professional should provide the service and care. Contact Whirlpool support for more information on repairs and warranty.

I am getting a F1 code in my washer which causes it to stop several times during a wash cycle, what do I need to do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you own a Whirlpool Cabrio and are experiencing an F1 error, you're unable to finish or start a load of clothes. When the Whirlpool Cabrio displays an F1 error, this means the the control board is having difficulty communicating with the motor.

To fix your F1 error, you can first try to unplug your washing machine for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the control board. The only tools that you need to replace the control board is a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4" hex head driver. Be sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet before performing any repairs.
After unplugging your Whirlpool Cabrio washer, carefully pull the washer away from the wall (Watch your drain hose and the two inlet hoses.) Next unscrew the 3 screws located on the back of the Whirlpool Cabrio. Next, take a picture or make note of where each plug connects to the control board. Next, unplug each plug and the pressure tube. Lastly, unscrew the 1/4 screw then remove control board. Replace with new control board and reverse your steps to install. The new board will fix the Whirlpool Cabrio F1 error.

Hi Sandra:
You have a bad control board, the F1 is the error for the bad board; what you need to do is remove the three screws at the back of the control panel and tilt the panel forward. The main control card is there. Unplug and re-seat all the connectors. Reassemble the unit and try it. If you still get the F1 error code then the controll card is toast.

What happens is these connections come loose. If they arc acrost the contacts then that is what fries the board. Most people that know about this fix are lucky and the unit starts to work right again. Some arnt so lucky.

If you are one of the lucky ones place a healthy dab or two of hot melt glue stick on each connector to hold them from working loose again.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .

My KEModel 27086 stops during the cycle (any cicle) and shows code F1, I know is either an "air hose" or a computer board; how hard it is to "do it yourself" ?


F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

I keep getting the code f1 on my washer when trying to turn it on. Any suggestions?


Forgive my plagiarism, but I looked your problem up on ask.com for an error code listing and this came back for a cabrio, and may not apply to you, so...don't hold me to it:

"F1 means the central electrical control unit, i.e. the onboard computer, has fatally failed. Unless you have both the skill and tools to test the guts of this computer, you're stuck replacing it. Good news, three screws at the rear to expose the control panel, then unplug one unit; plug in the new one. Just to be on the safe side, color code all the plugs and receptacles.

F1 error code


"F1" is a primary control failure. This is an indication that the main machine control board has failed. The board is located on the right-hand side under the operator console. You can access it by removing the three screws in the back of the console and then lifting the console from the back towards the front of the washer. Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before opening the console. CAUTION: Use care when lifting the console off the cabinet. There are small interconnecting cables that connect the operator console to the control board that can be damaged if pulled too hard. The first thing you should do is perform a visual inspection to insure all the wires are connected and seated correctly. You can also try unplugging each connector one at a time and reseating them. Sometimes contacts can oxidize and not make good contact. If you attempt everything and the washer still does not run, you have a failed control board. If you wish to repair yourself, the board can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number (located under the lid along the rim of the wash tub opening) and you will find the part you need under the "Control Panel Parts" listing as item #1. The prices vary greatly between washer model versions, so make sure you have a COMPLETE model number when you type it in the search index. I hope this was helpful. Post back if you have any further questions.
